LUCA School of Arts is part of FILMEU, the European Universities Alliance for Film and Media Arts.
FilmEU brings together four higher education institutions. Together, we collaborate around the common objective of jointly promoting high-level education, innovation and research activities in the multidisciplinary field of Film and Media Arts and consolidate the central role of Europe as a world leader in the creative fields.
In its conceptual phase, students, teachers and researchers will get the chance to participate in preparatory activities (mobilities, workshops, readings, ...) related to the new degree programmes. To be involved, keep an eye out on this page and the social media of LUCA and FilmEU!
brings together four European Higher Education Institutions:
The consortium integrates four institutions with strong expertise in Film and Media Arts education, a common internationalization ambition, and a long track record of past collaborations that include more than a decade of expertise in the development of European joint projects, including E+ Knowledge Alliances, Strategic Partnerships and “Erasmus Mundus” Joint Master Degrees, besides other joint education and research projects, in order to foster the excellence and attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area.
FILMEU is focused on long-term strategic collaboration and our mission is to develop a European University that is a model for European collaboration and integration in the fields of the Arts and the creative industries. Our mission is to create a European University that will greatly contribute to Europe’s leading role as a provider of education and research in the creative and artistic areas. Our mission is to configure a European University that fosters the concretization of the knowledge triangle in these fields by contributing to the ongoing structural, economic and material reconfigurations of the cultural and creative industries.

The institutions that integrate FILMEU share the belief that cinema and media arts lay at the centre of social transformations and economic growth which the creative sector can potentially impel if proper collaborative networks are successfully erected in Europe.
Building on more than a decade of successful cooperation, these four institutions envision positioning themselves as key players in driving education, innovation and research in Film and Media Arts within the European Higher Education Area and in promoting the central role the creative and cultural industries can, and should have, in our societies.
FILMEU aspires to build on the Alliance members’ previous expertise in several education and research initiatives, namely in the joint design and implementation of the 4 existing European Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) “Erasmus Mundus” in the areas of Film and Artistic creativity, and in the joint development of the knowledge triangle linking research, teaching and industry, in order to achieve a high level of integration of its members’ policies and actions though fostering:
The teaching of art and architecture on the Sint-Lukas campus in Brussels stretches back more than hundred years. On this recently renovated campus, young artists and designers can choose from two academic bachelor's degrees and three master's degrees in Fine Art, Photography, Graphic Design, Film, Animation Film and Documentary film (DocNomads). In addition, as a former architecture school, Sint-Lukas offers professional degree courses in Construction Technology and Interior Design.
An international campus and an added value to your programme
C-mine offers an excellent framework for art education. C-mine is an inspiring place for creative entrepreneurship and a breeding ground for young, creative talent.
Furthermore we create an interesting cross-fertilization with the professional field through collaboration with partners such as C-mine Crib, FabLab, IDE (Innovation & Design Euregio), FLACC and other creative organizations and companies.
On the Campus Brussels (Narafi), LUCA School of Arts organizes professional bachelor courses in Film, TV and Video and Photography. Narafi was founded in 1939, making it the oldest film and photography school in Belgium. From the beginning, our students found a home in the Duden Castle in the park of the same name in Forest.
We would like to invite you to be part of FilmEU’s International Cineclub organized by the four partner universities of FilmEU. The Cineclub is a recurring film (film – animation film) evening for students where, in addition to watching films, they also get the chance to talk to guest speakers. The films will be selected based on a predetermined theme. Programme is find below.
Four film nights will be organized throughout 2021-2022. Each partner in turn organizes a night where students are invited in person on their home universities.
All students from LUCA School of Arts are welcome to participate, especially our film and animation film students. See you there!
The FILMEU Summit was the perfect setting for different reasons. Since LUCA is a multicampus school, it was the first time the different LUCA participants came together physically and therefore could better discuss the future impact of the project on LUCA as a whole. The Summit made clear that the opportunities for education and research of the ERASMUS FILMEU project and the HORIZON FILMEU-RIT are endless and that every participant in the room can contribute on different levels. Moreover, the summit showed a lot of people, students and staff, very passionate about the future collaborations.
